It’s Halloween weekend, so doesn’t everyone want to know where the ghosts are living nearby?!…
A new study of the Paranormal Database’s huge record of sightings has revealed that London is the second most haunted city in the UK – with a total of 684 paranormal reports.
So, we’ve rounded up the ghost sightings that have been reported in south east London – with full details and locations:
Boat moored close to London Bridge
An employee on this boat reported seeing an image taken on board which shows the side view of a figure with ruffled collar. The figure disappears at the knee and looks as if it floats on a white cloud.
Thomas a Becket public house, Old Kent Road
At one time, the landlord here claimed he had a room so haunted upstairs that nobody could spend more than five minutes inside without fleeing in terror.
Greenwich Park, Crooms Hill Gate
A female witness watched a group of red haired women carrying a coffin in the area; the entities legs ended at the kneecaps, and they totally vanished when they reached the gate. Another entity that materialised by the side of a man in the park was described as short and ugly, and not quite human – needless to say, the witness to this one quickly moved away. Elliott O’Donnell stated this park is full of phantom birds.
122 Conington Road, Shepherd’s Bush, Lewisham
A witness here said she watched a small flame, the size of a candle’s, flicker around her bed.
One Tree Hill, Honor Oak Park, Dulwich, Forest Hill
A female dancer was seen performing perfect complex ballet moves on the hill late at night, without making a sound on the debris ridden ground.
Have you ever seen a ghost in one of these locations?!
